Sleep Apnea Treatment in New Jersey

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which a person repeatedly stops breathing as they sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the throat tissues and muscles relax and block the airway. Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that can cause a number of health problems including memory issues. Luckily, early and effective sleep apnea treatment can actually help to restore your memory. Read on as Dr. Ivan Stein and Dr. Allan Stein at New Jersey Sleep Apnea Solutions reveal how sleep apnea treatment can help restore your memory.

How Does Sleep Apnea Impact the Brain?

Repeated breathing pauses during sleep can interfere with the body’s ability to get enough oxygen to the brain. This lack of oxygen to the brain can actually lead to brain damage, dementia and memory issues.

Studies on Sleep Apnea’s Impact on Memory

The impact of sleep apnea on memory has been observed in numerous studies, including the following:

  • According to the Cleveland Clinic, researchers recently confirmed that those who had sleep-disordered breathing had an earlier onset of mild cognitive impairment compared with people who didn’t suffer from obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Another study published in the National Library of Medicine found that the presence of sleep-disordered breathing was associated with an earlier age at cognitive decline.

Sleep Apnea Treatment Can Help Restore Your Memory

There is hope for individuals suffering from memory issues related to sleep apnea. The same studies mentioned above also found that sleep apnea treatment can help restore your memory. The following insight is from the studies:

  • According to the Cleveland Clinic, researchers also found that people who treated their sleep breathing problems with a continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP, were diagnosed with memory and thinking problems about 10 years later than people whose problems were not treated.
  • According to the study published in the National Library of Medicine, its findings suggest that CPAP treatment of sleep-disordered breathing may delay progression of cognitive impairment.
